Hungry Canberrans rolled up to Commonwealth Park in force for the smorgasboard offered by the Commons Street Feast, which feted the capital for 10 days from 30 November to 10 December.

The free entry event brought more than 20 of Australia’s most mouthwatering food trucks to Canberra and also boasted craft beer from local brewers and the best vintages from the lauded Canberra region wine district. There was also the Pimms Summer Garden Pop-Up serving Aperitifs.

A host of events, music and installations, including roving performers, kept the crowds entertained.

Diners were spoilt for choice with food trucks from Hoy Pinoy, Down N’ Out, Mary’s, Gelato Messina, Maverick Wings, Pimp My Chimney, MEET, De Wafel, Kransky Brothers, Killa Fries, Two Fat Indians, Getintheq, The Avocado Hut, That Arancini Guy, Soul Cartel, Graze Expectations, and Twistto.

2016 favourites Gelato Messina served a custom dessert range exclusive to The Commons, and Mary’s introduced its fried chicken to Canberra, alongside its ‘get fat’ burgers.

Local photographer Jack Mohr was on site to capture all the action.
